“Great food and Great Beer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

Visited here on Weds, great information and advice given in relation to beer. Picked the Gonzo burger, Yorkshire hot dog and some chilli cheese chips! Yum! The chilli chips were beaut! I couldn't manage all of the hot dog but staff were hAppy to wrap it up to take away. Gonzo burger was very tasty too. Great if you like decent and different beer, cocktails and comfort food. Bar has a good atmosphere and was surprisingly busy for a weds night! Great mix of customers too.

“a haven for lovers of fine things, beer, spirits, food and company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

since I first visited gonzo not long after it opened I have become a regular, and considering I live in leeds that's no easy statement. The décor is relaxed and fairly indie, but not pretentious. it's run by a team who are passionate about the drinks they pour and the food they serve. It isn't cheap, and it's proud of that, they serve quality. if you want a flat pint of fosters for £2 there are plenty of places in Holmfirth to get one.

there are a great selection of craft beers and unusual spirits to choose from. they also have a selection of hand pulled ales on provided by various breweries including nook which is more or less next door - try and get more local than that!

one of the best things about the place is that the staff aren't just there to pour you a drink, they really know their stuff, can tell you the history and make up of a drink and suggest things intelligently based on your likes and dislikes. the old fashioned is just brilliant for those that like their stronger stuff, but does take ten mins or so to make so be patient. I really like the bottled german smoked ale they do but that might be an acquired taste!

the restaurant upstairs is affiliated with the pub so the restaurant food is available throughout the bar. they do a 'gonzo burger' which is massive oozy stack of pulled pork, cheese, beef and salsa which is, and I mean this, absolutely chuffing brilliant. they have other stuff on the menu that's probably great too, but every time ive been I've been unable to order anything else.

all in all, great if you're not after cheap and cheerful, love a good pint and a good feed, and are interested in discovering new drinks you've never heard of.

“Hitting their stride!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. I have had a meal and a few boozy nights here and always enjoyed myself. Its nice to go with a group as it can be a bit rowdy for couples in the bar.

“Great night out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

A group of 12 from 'down South' hit Holmfirth on Saturday night and we know how to party! This was a fab night of good company - friends and family all out to taste craft beers, cocktails and the incredible range of quality and unique spirits. The drinks menu is a literary work of art, Luke more than knows his 'stuff' when it comes to alcohol. For those who have an interest in what they are drinking ( not just the effects of what they are consuming) the knowledge, history and description is amazing! It is a place we will visit again, the service was tops with an atmosphere better than any London bar - quirky and relaxed. Well done Luke & your team! Ps brunch was a winner too! Sue and guests x
